Goodwin Volunteers Help Cradles to Crayons Get Essentials to Needy Kids

A team of Goodwin Procter volunteers recently worked with Cradles to Crayons in Boston, helping underprivileged kids get the basics they need to thrive at school, home and play.

The Goodwin team included Dave Cappillo. Volunteers spent the day sorting, inspecting and packaging donated toys and preparing them for distribution. Goodwin volunteers were joined by David Brown from Technology Underwriting Greater Good (TUGG) and Trish Fontanilla from Vsnap, also volunteering as a representative from BostonCares.

Last year, Cradles to Crayons provided free packages of clothes, shoes, books, toys, baby safety equipment and school supplies to 87,000 children in Massachusetts and the Philadelphia area.

Working with social workers, nurses, teachers, and therapists, Cradles to Crayons has become a trusted resource: to children and families in need; to the organizations who serve those families; and to families, corporations, and individuals who seek ways to make a difference in their own communities.

The volunteer effort at Cradles to Crayon was part of the Technology Underwriting Greater Good (TUGG) Tech Gives Back ‘Day of Service’ co-sponsored by Goodwin Procter and clients Atlas Venture, General Catalyst, Veracode and Vertica. More information about TUGG can be found at
